KINGSTON JAMAICA EMBASSY CR1 VISA APPROVAL WAIT TIME?

57 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is anyone experiencing a long wait since the approval of their CR1 Visa at the Kingston Embassy?  My husband was approved and it is now week 2 and we want to know when the Visa will be ready.  I sent the embassy and email and they responded "it is under review" and they will contact us once it is completed.  Why is this taking so long?

Did my interview on November 21st medical was outstanding at the time so wasn't fully approved. Andrews confirmed that the medical was sent off on December 19th, been emailing the embassy since then. I got an email from them on December 30th saying the case is undergoing administrative processing even though the ceac website saying ready for interview. December was the last updated date and status still saying case is ready for interview, been emailing them and no reply.

Hello,

 

\May I ask did they have his medical at the time? That is our hold up from interview done 1/5

His medical was done, December 13th and received at the Embassy on January 3rd.  His interview was January 5th.  It seems they didn't check the database before his interview to realize that his medical was there.  I emailed them last week and got a response that it is under "review" and they will contact as us as soon as it is completed or meaning when the visa is issued but its 2 weeks now.  I don't understand why it's taking so long and the only contact you can have with them is through email and no live person.

I totally know what your going through.  So it's been a month for you now.  They told my husband up to a month for it to be issued but that is crazy.  I hope you get an answer soon.  Are you in the CR1 category?

I'm sure they are working on it but this really taking too long for both of us!! Once your medical is CLEAR and your visa is APPROVED.  They should do what they need to do quickly so people can get to be with their loved one.

sometimes for some random reason it takes a while, they are still doing checks for whatever reason. Ever so often there is a case here and there that takes much longer than normal and sometimes at a particular time everybody is waiting. I know this doesn't make it any easier just maybe knowing that if they said you were approved then you have nothing to worry about except to die of waiting lol. Hopefully you both get your visas soon!

OMG I am getting stressed reading these posts.  I just don't get it.  Just don't understand the hold up.  Always told be patient, but the patience is wearing thin. We wait long enough to be with our husband and for it to drawn out even longer after the interview just for one item that they have total control over.  They need to go back to people being able to bring their medical in at the time of interview.  My husband is so down about this.  My daughter is upset cuz she wanted him here for her birthday next week, but can see it is not going to happen.  When I see one person get through I will see a little bit of hope:(
